This document defines a HTTP response header field called Safe, which can be used to indicate that repeating a HTTP request is safe. Such an indication will allow user agents to handle retries of some safe requests, in particular safe POST requests, in a more user-friendly way.
For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.
For the definition of Stream, see RFC 8729.
